Chroniques Aeriennes: L'art d'Alex MacLean
Éditions La Découverte
With a photo essay by Gilles A. Tiberghien.
Dominique Carré éditeur / La Découverte, Paris
By studying photography through the window of his plane for thirty years, Alex MacLean has developed a rare ability to make us understand the conflict between the planet and the wild nature of our cultural habits. Throughout the seemingly endless expanses he travels tirelessly, he strives to identify, mark the landscape (whether of topographical, political, economic or cultural) that, for better or for worse, show our ability to adapt to the territories where we operate.
A pilot himself, as well as an architect and urban planner trained at Harvard University, he illustrates comprehensively and descriptively the way we live - in the truest sense - with the planet.
Selected among thousands of images, this book brings together a selection of some of the best of Alex MacLean.
